SOLVED - Is myQListWidget->selectedItems().at(0)->text() always the same as myQListWidget->currentItem()->text() ?

  • Given, the mode of selection is single selection, do these both yield the same result?

    AFAICT, yes. But to confirm that, writing a little test application would have got you the answer sooner

  • Thanks @SGaist! I am sorry, I wasn't able to find the official Qt repo at the time of posting this question, that's why I asked this question. Later, when I found it, I went through the code and got my answer.

    The answer is:
    If a QListWidgetItem is passed to setCurrentItem() (directly or indirectly; setCurrentItem() also selects the specified item, if the selection mode is notQAbstractItemView::NoSelection), then both myQListWidget->selectedItems().at(0)->text() and myQListWidget->currentItem()->text() show the same result. Whereas, if an item is selected by any other means, then it may or may not become the current item, hence both may yield different results.

    Why did you need the Qt repo ?
